Exclamation Responsive background

I am starting with the alternative clothing template and have xcart 5.2.4 and i would like to have my back ground resize it self to every size window like the page itself does already i also do not want the background to scroll. It needs to stay fixed and resize itself. I dont have a clue. Please help

Welcome to the forum. I take it you already have the background implemented in some way. If you provide a link to the site, we can easily suggest some CSS changes to achieve the effect you want.

Try taking the background off the html element. Keep it on the body only.
Then add some CSS3:

background-size: 125%;

You might also try:

background-size: cover;

No problem.But now I am the one confused. How did you add the background in the first place?

Anyway, you can make the CSS change, which is all that is needed, in the custom CSS section under look and feel. This is the easiest way to affect your front end CSS.
